About me

Do you feel alone, worried, stressed or afraid? Or maybe just unsettled and on edge? Sometimes life can be difficult and we may need a helping hand to overcome the stresses and strains of everyday life. Anxiety and depression can make you feel isolated and alone, grief sometimes affects us in ways we didn’t expect or we may feel angry with the world for no apparent reason. Whatever the problem, it helps to talk about it.

I am an experienced counsellor, hypnotherapist and life coach, working with people from all walks of life. I provide a safe and welcoming environment to help you feel comfortable without feeling judged or criticised.  I will work with you to reach your end goal and ultimately feel better about yourself and your life. I use different techniques, depending on each client and structure each treatment plan accordingly.  All sessions are confidential.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications are as follows:

  • Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • Certicificate in Counselling Skills and Theory
  • Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills
  • Diploma in Life Coaching
  • Bachelor’s degree in Commerce (Industrial Psychology)

In addition to my qualifications as a psychotherapist, I have also worked within the Financial Services industry in a variety of roles and have experienced first-hand, the stresses and anxieties associated with working life.

I am committed to continuing Professional Development to enhance and update my skills to be able to provide my clients with the very best care. I work within the ethical framework of the National Counselling Society for good professional practice.  I am insured and have regular clinical Supervision.
